Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), Wichita (Emma Stone), and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) have found a place to settle down. They are struggling with the what family is, how to deal with other survivors, and how to destroy evolving zombies.
The crew from the first Zombieland movie have moved into the deserted White House. They are the new world version of domestic bliss. One day Wichita and Little Rock decide it is time to cut ties and move on, each with their own reasons to do so. Soon enough Little Rock has found someone her own age to hang out with and leaves Wichita behind. Wichita returns to the White House under the guise of getting more weapons when in reality she is looking to reconnect with Columbus and convince both him and Tallahassee to help her find Little Rock. Off they go on a new adventure. The obvious place is to start looking is at Graceland. They find that it has been completely destroyed but find another place not too far away that is a shrine to Elvis. There they meet other survivors, but Little Rock is long gone. She is heading for a no-violence commune called Babylon. They continue on their journey to find Little Rock at Babylon and end up in an over the top zombie battle. Did they survive? You will have to see the movie to find out.
I thought it was entertaining. It was not even close to as good as the first movie but then again sequels rarely are. The plot was incredibly predictable. Some parts were a little boring, but the fun parts make up for it. The best scenes are pretty much the entire section at the Elvis shrine and the postscript scene. Incredibly bloody and violent but that is what it takes to kill zombies.
I loved the casting. A sequel is never a good idea unless you can get all of the same actors to play the reoccurring parts. Rosario Dawson is always a delight. I absolutely loved Luke Wilson and Thomas Middleditch. They were hilarious and spot on. I don’t want to spoil it so you will have to watch the movie to see what I mean. Zoey Deutch was perfect as the annoying airhead.
The script was ok. There was nothing unique or surprising. I could have written that script myself. It went exactly where I thought it would without deviating from the obvious. That being said, it was exactly what this sequel needed. It covered all the basis and wrapped it all up in a neat little package. Despite being straight forward, it was still entertaining.
Excellent. I could do with a little less vomiting, but zombies will be zombies. The Special effects really make this movie. I watched this movie at Alamo Drafthouse. If you are familiar with these theaters, they play short segments of older material that are related to the movie you will be watching. Almost all of these pre-movie segments had really bad special effects. The advances with CGI and other special effect processes are really impressive.
Should You Go See This Movie?
It is a really fun and entertaining movie. Do not expect it to be as good as the original. You MUST stay for the postscript scenes. It was the best part.
